Being Content


I was talking with a good friend of mine yesterday on the phone and we started talking about contentment, and I got up on my sassy horse and went on a rant about how she needed to find it.

Feeling like I had given her sound advice based on my past experiences, I went about my afternoon.

Later that night when I went to bed, I said to Casey, I think I'm going to get my next tattoo down the side of my body. Seriously? It hasn't even been a week since my last one. It's on my foot. It was 3 hours of terrible pain, but totally worth it. I love it!!! The idea came to me during a bible study I started in January. The study is called Transformed Inside Out, it's about finding contentment and balance in your life based on scripture. It was a fantastic study for me and put lots of things in perspective. I am actually going to lead the 12 week study this fall. I am sending up lots of prayers, as I have never lead a study before and I'm slightly nervous, but since God put the idea in my head I have no doubt that He has a plan!
Anyway, back on topic, contentment. I am always looking for the next thing and after I told Casey I would be getting another tattoo, I decided I needed to really enjoy the one I just got less than a week ago.
I am going to really make it a point to be aware of what I am doing this next week and make sure I'm enjoying the blessing of where I am and not planning the next thing.
Proverbs 19:23
The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.

The Wild Women of my life

What happens when 16 women from different states, backgrounds, and generations come together in an amazing house for one long weekend?

One Wild Weekend! I think any woman would be excited to have a weekend away. From schedules, requirements, stress, and laundry:) I look forward to this week almost as much as I look forward to date night with my Superman. This annual trip for me came about when my friend Cindy told me I was going with her. This is Cindy and her loving husband Tim:

Isn't she just beautiful?
Since, this is my blog, and Cindy isn't here to dispute it, here is how I remember the story's beginning.
Cindy is my friend and was my girl scout co-leader. We met at an info meeting for scouts and I asked her to help me out with the troop. Because I am a bit of a control freak, I wanted a co-leader to be a fun lady who would have a blast with the girls, and do what I needed done. Which was basically show up and go on fun trips with us. Cindy is always a blast and she loves …

Kitchen re-do.....done?

So I really did have better intentions of blogging more this year, and well as you can see I have it's been a while...

I have been abundantly blessed in my job this year. The real estate market is gradually picking up and interest rates are still so incredibly low. It has been a blast helping people sell a current home and buy a new home. I wish I could put into words how excited I am when I see "that look" on my clients face when they walk into "their" house. It's like the desire to do cartwheels tempered with the prospect of making a offer that crosses their faces at the same time. It can almost make me giggle. Then comes my favorite part...the negotiation. I LOVE IT! So, if you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell please pass my name along.

I wanted to share a bit today about another question I get quite often...

What should I upgrade in my house? How much should I do?

I am always happy to come have a look to determine what needs done and how much t…
